I can't believe how quickly time goes by, and I am very sad to say that tonight at midnight all those amazing Sale-a-Bration FREE products disappear, as do the Coordination Products. That adorable Lady Bug stamp set with the coordinating dies is so adorable, and that whole Lily Pad package with the DSP, the stamp set, the dies.... Love that! If you haven't gotten all the FREE crafting items you need, be sure you place your order before midnight when they disappear. AND if you use hostess code W62S769B when you place your order, I will send you 15 amazing tutorials using Sale-a-Bration items! 

You can place your order three ways:
or text me: 248-909-8016


Today I was lucky enough to find three beautiful cards in my mailbox. Boy, do I feel blessed, loved, appreciated and special. It was a huge warm fuzzy that made my day!!

I can personally attest to the fact that these card shower cards do make a difference. Please continue to spread the happy with me!

These are the Paper Pumpkin Alternatives I shared on Create With Chris Live tonight.  Be sure to stop  by throughout the week and see more alternatives!


Here is the Create With Chris Live I did tonight on my FaceBook pages.  I share some Paper Pumpkin Alternatives, and I will continue to share more alternatives throughout the week with you.

With all of us Sheltering in Place, I find my paper crafting is more important than it ever has been.  It's my time to be creative and destress.   Paper Pumpkin is a great option for those of you who want to craft and relax during these difficult and uncertain times.  It is a subscription paper crafting kit that comes right to your door each month and it contains all the items you need to complete the cards/projects for that month.  You can sign up month-to-month, like you would to receive a monthly magazine or you can purchase prepaid subscriptions. When you purchase a prepaid subscription before the end of March, you can get FREE Sale-a-Bration items too!

Order 24/7 on my website:  www.rubberroom.stampinup.net
Text your order to me:  248-909-8016 or
Email your order to me:  ckolly@stampingismybusiness.com


Let's continue to put those cards in the mail.  Shelter in Place will continue, so those cards need to keep coming.  Each day it becomes harder and harder to communicate, stay healthy and be able to stay upbeat and positive.  A card in a mailbox, can really make someone's day, and it's pretty easy to do.  If you need cards to send, please let me know.  I am happy to get some to you.

Stay healthy and strong, my friends and be sure to keep getting your craft on!

I don't think there is anything more powerful than a thank you card.  Whether it is for something someone did for you or whether it is a thanks for being you or for being my neighbor or my doctor or my friend, it doesn't matter why.  When you send a thank you card, you are letting someone know you recognize them and appreciate them.  It doesn't get much better than that in my book.  Today, let's let someone know we see them and appreciate them.

A card can make a world of difference in these trying times, and our card shower is touching lots and lots of lives.  I hope you can join us.  Today let's send a praying for you card.  Right now everyone can use some extra prayers; let's make it happen!


Now more than ever, it is super important for us to be able to still craft together, so the Rubber Room is going virtual. The last Saturday night of each month, beginning at 8:00, put your comfy jammies on, grab your Paper Pumpkin Kit, and your favorite beverage and join me in the Zoom Rubber Room so we can all put our kits together virtually. If you have an alternative idea, bring that to share too.

During these days of quarantine and uncertainty, I am going to do my best to share some happy, positive thoughts through my love of paper crafting.  And, instead of my once a week Create With Chris Live on Monday evenings, I will be sharing through videos throughout the week.  The goal right now is 3 videos per week. I will be creating Live on my FaceBook Page, Rubber Room Ramblings, Stampin' Up! with Chris Kolly.  I will then upload the videos to YouTube and post the link here for you.  I do hope you enjoy a little creative diversion during these crazy times!  Please reach out if you have any questions or want to place an order, etc....


I hope you can join our card shower!
Each day I will post a "suggestion" for what sort of card to send.  You don't have to follow the suggestion, it's just something to help you in case you are struggling with who to send a card to, what kind of card to send, etc...  what really matters is that you send a card.  In this crazy world (that is getting crazier each day), it important we spread the happy mail wide and far!
If you need cards to send, please send me an email and your snail mail address.  I have lots of cards and I am happy to pass them along.

Here is the video from Create With Chris Live.  I hope you enjoy our crafting time together.

I am sending a card each day during lent, but in light of everything that's happening in this wild and wacky world, it's more important than ever to spread the joy of happy mail. I hope all of you will join me in sending cards during these difficult times.
If you need cards to send, please PM me. I have lots and lots of cards, and I would love to put some in the mail to you so you can help spread the happy mail joy.

Each day I will post a reminder and a card "focus", in case you can't decide where to send a card. You don't have to follow the daily "focus", all you have to do is send a card each day!

I always look forward to stamping with all of in-person. For some of us this is our only "escape" from the crazy times we are now experiencing. I want you to feel welcomed & comfortable in knowing I'm taking the following precautions.
Prior to class -
a) I will spray blocks and any tools with Lysol;
b) I am sanitizing door handles and surfaces within our home and the Rubber Room;
c) All treats will be in individual packaging;
d) l ask everyone use the provided hand sanitizer as you arrive and
throughout class as desired;
e) Wipes and hand santizer will be handy and plentiful on the work tables and in the snack area; and
f) Sadly, all hugging will now be fist/elbow bumping.

If you are at risk, or just prefer not to come out, please consider ordering the class to go and assemble the cards/projects at home.
